Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory



When you’re down to your bottom dollar ” providing it’s a Lincoln ” perhaps the best thing to do is wander into Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory at the top of Bridge Street and peruse the selections. Truffles, caramel apples and fudge make up some of the 300-plus sweet things the store sells. The avalanche bark is a signature sweet: white chocolate and peanut butter studded with Rice Krispies, marshmallows and chocolate chips.

For those who prefer a day on the hill (provided they’re already equipped with a pass), there’s nothing like the good ol’ Vail and Lionshead parking structures. Roll up the windows, lock the doors and head up the lift to find a stash. The chances of winning the Lotto are none too good, but what a run a winner could have.
